taking $716 billion out of medicare. how many times did he say it? count along with us. >> romney: medicare for current retirees he's cutting $716 billion. because of those $716 billion in cuts. 716--$716 billion--$716 billion. you're going to see a $716 billion cut to medicare. and the president support taking $716 billion out of that program. >> cenk: he said it ten times! and every time literally screaming in the studios in new york going hit him back! that's not true! say it isn't true! instead, this is what president obama said. >> obama: um um, um, and um, and and um, now, um um, you know that may not-- >> cenk: oooh! because of that he found himself in the middle of a ring going hey, what's going on? where did mitt go? oh no, he's on the top rung. we didn't want to see that. we didn't want to see that. then mitt romney sets him up perfectly. you know you got to mention bain. you got to mention the cayman islands and the swiss bank accounts. >> you say you get a deduction for taking a plant overseas. look i've been in business for 25 years. i have no idea what you're talking
to to help him. >> what is interesting on the polling of medicare and seniors who is obama's weakest demographic basically until the last month or two? it was seniors. seniors were very suspicious of obama. the foreignness the youth they saw him as liberal. and we've seen a dramatic turn around in call the key states. if you peel it back a little more, you find that is overwhelmingly related to the medicare question. the numbers on the medicare question particularly among seniors has shifted dramatically in obama's direction in just a month after ryan was initially picked. you'll recall they went very hard on medicare. they decided to run to their weakness, and they started to basically just lying or at least being incredibly dishonest saying that obama is going to do this and had cut 700 billion in change when, in fact ryan had cut the same amount in his budget proposal. you saw a little tightening when ryan was picked for the ticket, but the numbers have gone overwhelmingly in the other direction. seniors are now very much supporting obama in these swing states, and if you look at
but cutting spending. that's something that needs to start with medicaid, medicare and military spending. you got obama and romney debating who is going to spend more money on medicare when we need to have a raging debate and discussion in this country on how we slash medicare spending or we find ourselves with no healthcare for those over 65. that's the alternative. the monetary collapse--excuse me quickly. a monetary collapse when the dollars we have in our pocket don't buy a thing because of the inflation that is going to go along with borrowing and printing money to the tune of 43 of every dollar. >> cenk: ron paul seems to be saying the same thing do you but you haven't been able to capture them-- >> that's not the case. your ron paul supporter, i'm saying the same things as ron paul. i ran for the republican nomination. i thought it would be really hard to marginalize two people on stage saying the same thing ron paul and myself. i didn't find myself marginalized. i found myself down-right excluded while ron paul was marginalized. >> cenk: thank you so much for joining us. >> cenk, than
, medicare, medicaid, social security. >> so there it is. he's saying i offered it to the republicans. now, there's one other group that's concerned that he is not quite as progressive as we'd like him to be, the african-american community. african-americans in 2008 had an unemployment rate of 11.9% now up to 14.1%. of course the president is not solely responsible for that, it was the great recession caused by the republicans but there has not been a lot of action to specifically address that community in terms of making it better. latinos and whites have suffered but not at the rate african-americans have. when you move oh household income real median income for african-americans is just over $32,000, that's a gigantic difference. in 2005 for whites was $135,000, moved down to $110,000 now but when you look at african-americans, it goes from 12 for us to just under 5,000 so that's a gigantic problem. the congressional black caulk with us is aware of this. the head of the caucus has given fiery speeches where he says president obama, hope on, hope on and encouraging them. he also did say:
is going on. all right, before i break it. okay now let's go to the $716 billion lie. >> romney: medicare for current retirees he's cutting $716 billion from the program. >> cenk: huh, that's beard because that's turns out to be totally untrue. here's what polite cofact said about that. coat obama-care reduces future spending on medicare by reducing payments to insurance companies hotels and other providers. not to the people receiving medicare. this does not effect a single benefit to medicare recipients. mitt don't say the $716 billion lie again. it is a lie. the reality is you want to turn it into a voucher program because you never believed in medicare. your party has never believed in medicare. you talk about how democrats are going to hurt medicare? nonsense. i'm not done yet. you want to talk about how you love teachers? go ahead mitt. >> romney: i love great schools. massachusetts is ranked number one in 50 states. the key to great schools great teachers. i reject the idea that i don't believe in great teachers. >> cenk: except when you want to fire them. >> he said we need more f
